Children of brown bear children of puma Dig for dried berries where Coyote has lead us Under new mud Under dry needle blanket under bald bush Under the pine We steal these from the birds the hungry Winter birds
Sarit Frishman, is an American/Israeli, punk rock whore, a queer, trans dyke, and poet/spoken word artist.
Informed by the likes of Gary Snyder, T'ao Ch'ien and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Ms. Frishman's poems refuse to hang the reader up with ego driven, adjective weighted lines, and instead, draw them into intimate moments of transformation, where words themselves become secondary, and one is left haunted by the feeling that the experience on the page had been ones' own all along.
Her past writings have appeared in multiple editions of Metromorphosis and Public Illumination Magazine, as well as on velvetparkmedia.com.
Sarit's first book of poetry, "Things Missed in Exile", is available either through Nirala Publishing, or from the author at readings or by request. A limited number of signed copies are currently available through St. Mark's Books, in New York.
Sarit performs her spoken word throughout New York, and can be booked for special engagements.
